Cleaned my SR1911 today with the Ballistol liquid. It did a good job of cleaning the pistol. My judgement is still out though, want to try it on some copper fouling and plastic fouling.

Never heard of Ballistol before, please let us know how it wurks. LOL

Now, onto the next part.
You waiting for the Ballistol in the mail, sort of reminds Me of Ralphie waiting for His " Secret Decoder Ring" to arrive.

I have used Ballistol for cleaning my C96 Mauser "Broom" after using corrosive cheap foreign ammo. 1st ...was windex & simple green mix. Hairdrier to quick dry.
2nd... clean thoroughly with Ballistol .

You might know tha tthe original Ballistol was formulated around 1917 by the German Army to condition metal, wood , & leather, for wartime use. Protection from exterior exposure, is accomplished due to the high content of mineral oil .
Yes .....75 % mineral oil with the smelly additives to make it "authenticly industrial" .
